Physical Chemistry

Investigate how matter behaves on a molecular and atomic level and how chemical reactions occur through physical chemistry research at Central Michigan University.

Dr. Bingbing Li

The Li Group is focused on novel design of hierarchically structured polymer materials: (1) design principle, (2) fundamental physical chemistry of polymer-based materials, (3) property optimization, and (4) biomedical and environmental applications.

Dr. Mary Tecklenburg

We apply a variety of spectroscopic and diffraction techniques to the study of inorganic, organic and biological materials. The materials I study are diverse and have also included alkylsilanes, proteins containing the heme group (hemoglobin and cytochrome oxidase), inorganic glasses (germanium diselenide doped with metals) and polymers (azoaromatic polyethers). Modern computational modeling of molecular structure and conformation augments my experimental studies.
